Cavs News: Anderson Varejao Out For Season With Torn Achilles

Anderson Varejao Injury

The worst has been confirmed in regards to the injury suffered by Cleveland Cavaliers starting center Anderson Varejao, as he suffered a torn left achilles with 7:24 remaining in the third quarter in the Cavs’ 125-104 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Varejao was having a very solid season for the Cavs up until this point. In 26 games (all starts) this season for the 11-year veteran, he was averaging 9.8 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game.

The sudden loss leaves the Cavs without their starting center for the rest of the 2014-2015 season. Tristan Thompson and Brendan Haywood of the Cavs are expected to see their roles increase, or the Cavs may pursue someone via trade or free agency.

Josh Smith, who was waived by the Pistons on Monday, is a name that has been of interest by many teams, including Cleveland.
